Love this pattern! I was looking for a scarf pattern just for something quick to do, and saw a bunch of cowls... To be honest I thought the idea was odd- why not just wrap a scarf? Well since this only called for one ball of yarn and other reviewers said it was quick and easy, I tried it anyway. At first I had trouble joining the rounds and I missed that the pattern said to turn at the end of each round, but about 5 rows into it I realized what I needed to do and frogged it since it had gone very quickly up to that point. (Worked as a good gauge check anyway.) Once I started doing it correctly, it was fast and awesome. The Hometown USA is a great yarn for a cozy piece like this. I will like to try adding a few more chains and making it a little taller as well as the snuggly hood idea other reviews had sounds neat. It's summer now, but I can definitely see coming back to this pattern in the winter, especially when I need to see some results finished in between the usual dreadfully slow mittens I knit every winter. If you're on the fence about trying this pattern my suggestion is to go for it! Minimal time and materials wasted if you don't like it, but you probably will!

I doubled the number of beginning stitches,( 74) with fringe around the bottom and made a kind of continuous shawl to fit around my shoulders. Nice and cozy. Now I'm making a second cowl in the regular size. I completed the first cowl-shawl in about 1 1/2 hours. great and easy pattern.

this pattern is quick and easy. about an hour after I figured out how i wanted the pattern. I made it bigger 47 instead of 37 beginning chain and I made it 9 and1/2 inches long.

I really loved this one. Works up really fast and is beautiful. My only comment is the first time I made it, it was too small, larger heads need an adjustment to the base size.

I used one (plus a little bit) skein of discounted Hometown in Syracuse Orange that I found under the cutting table at Walmart for $4.00 a skein. My gauge was too big with a P needle, so I used a Boye N. The first time, it was too big around and looked funny. I ripped it all out because it's such a fast project. The second time, I crocheted tighter and liked the look better. I was also more careful about joining and counting stitches in each round. I like when each round turns out to be a count of 36. Cute project. Feels cozy. I'm planning on wearing it soon.

I just made one right now and it looks great! I am prepared for winter!!!! It looks really good with the hat I've already made.

All in all, it took about 35 minutes to make. The only part I had trouble with was weaving in the ends. The eye of my needle isn't big enough for the yarn to go through comfortably.

I love my new cowl!!! And because I got to study for a year in West Yorkshire I just had to make this. I'm a very cute and hip Grandma with my new cowl. I used two strands of Vanna's Choice in beautiful wild-berry. It took all of 30-40 minutes to make it. It has the best look ever. Now everybody out there, go get creative. Susie
